For the party favor cookie bouquet,
 I made it from a recycled plastic flower pot, floral foam, silk flowers then placed the cookies in-between.

OK, hope I haven't lost my audience yet,
there's more pics to come...
then I might break out the vacation slides :D


  1. Terry, you just amaze me! Everything is just beautiful and I can't believe you MIL is also 80! She looks like her late 60's early 70's!

  9. To Bonnie from Terry's MIL. THANK YOU so very much for the compliment about my age. Reaching the age of 80 has been a hard one for me, but I think now when asked my age I'll say 70. My other daughter-in-law said we should have a "unbirthday" party. Maybe we could all get in on that. Love to you, Betty
